Sounds like memory. 32 bit can use a lot less thatn 64 bit

Bring up task manager, and check memory usage, and free, under the performance tab.

Check memory with memtest86
Make sure that you are not over heating.
Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Try a clean boot
Make sure PSU is working properly
Check back and I will get you some links that you can use for the above

This seems like a lot, but go slow, ask questiions and you will be up and running.

Everything looks OK. I think that I should go back to my original idea ie memory. Those games use a lot of resources and memory is the most important. I think that you have to go back to 64 to have the game operate the way that it should.
64 utilizes memory very efficiently.
